ARTHUR B. CHAPIN, 



Treasurer and Receiver General. 



METROPOLITAN WATBE WOEKS. 



The Metropolitan Water District as originally established * embraced 
the cities of Boston, Chelsea, Everett, Maiden, Medford, Melrose, 
Newton and Somerville and the towns of Belmont, Hyde Park, 
Revere, Watertown and Winthrop. The city of Quincy and the 
towns of Nahant, Arlington, Stoneham, Lexington and Milton have 
since been admitted into the District. 

The Board under the Act of 1895 took the sources of water sup- 
ply of the city of Boston, embracing the Cochituate, Sudbury and 
Mystic systems and the Chestnut Hill Reservoir and pumping sta- 
tion. It has completed the large Sudbury Reservoir which was 
under construction at the time of the taking, built the Wachusett 
Aqueduct from the Nashua River in Clinton to the Sudbury Reser- 
voir, the Weston Aqueduct from the Sudbury Reservoir to the 
Charles River, and has nearly completed the great Wachusett Dam 
and Reservoir. The Board has also laid about 85 miles of main 
water pipes throughout the Metropolitan District and has built pump- 
ing stations and other works of water supply. 

The water is supplied by the Board to the various cities and towns, 
which distribute it each to its own inhabitants. 

Authority has been given to the Treasurer of the Commonwealth 
to issue bonds to an amount not exceeding $40,000,000 for the ex- 
penditures of the Board, which on June 1, 1905, had amounted to 
$38,698,240.56. 

Annual assessments are made to pay interest, sinking fund and 
maintenance charges. Boston is assessed the proportion which its 
valuation bears to the total valuation of the District. The other 
municipalities are assessed one-third in proportion to their valuations 
and two-thirds in proportion to their populations, except that those 
having still sufficient local supplies pay only one- sixth of the full 
assessment; but in 1906 consumption of water will be substituted 
for population in the basis of assessment. 

The estimated population of the District in 1905 is 972,600. The 
total consumption of water for the year 1904 from Metropolitan 
sources was, upon the average, 114,876,000 gallons per day. With 
the substantial completion of the Wachusett Dam and Reservoir it is 
estimated that the Metropolitan Works have a daily capacity of 173,- 
000,000 gallons.

t In accordance with the provisions of the Act above referred to, but Vq of the total 
population and valuation has been taken, as at present these municipalities have a 
sufficient supply and have not made application for water. 



Water Income in Metropolitan District for the Year 1904. 

The income for the year 1904 from the sale of water iu the cities 
and towns supplied by the Metropolitan Works, Swampscott included, 
was $3,393,251, equivalent to $81.38 per million gallons used. In 
the year 1900 and subsequent years no payment was made in the 
cities of Boston and Somerville for water used for public purposes, 
and in some other municipalities the payments have been largely 
reduced. This change in policy has effected a reduction in the water 
income, estimated at present to be not less than $350,000 per annum.

THE METROPOLITAN PARK SYSTEM. 



A preliminary Metropolitan Park Comniission was required by 
Chapter 342 of the Acts of 1892 to report upon *' the advisability of 
laying out ample open spaces for the use of the public in the towns 
and cities in the vicinity of Boston." The report submitted by this 
preliminary commission has been the basis of all subsequent legisla- 
tion and of the resulting Metropolitan Park System. 

The Metropolitan Park Act* established a Metropolitan Parks 
District of Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Lynn, Maiden, 
Medford, Melrose, Newton, Quincy, Somerville, Waltham, Woburn, 
Arlington, Belmont, Braintree, Brookline, Canton, Dedham, Dover, 
Hingham, Hull, Hyde Park, Milton, Nahant, Needham, Revere, 
Saugus, Stoneham, Swampscott, Wakefield, Watertown, Wellesley, 
Weston, Weymouth, Winchester and Winthrop. Westwood has 
been added by division of Dedham, and Cohasset has been required 
to join in payments on account of Nanlasket Beach. 

The Park Act also established the Metropolitan Park Commission 
with authority to "acquire, maintain and make available to the in- 
habitants of this district ample open spaces for exercise and recrea- 
tion " within the district and to the extent of appropriations for that 
purpose. Appropriations under this act and amendments have been 
provided for by the Metropolitan Paries Loan on forty-year bonds 
of the Commonwealth ; and this loan is being repaid by the several 
cities and towns of the district by annual payments in proportions 
fixed by an apportionment made each five years by the Supreme 
Judicial Court upon report of special commissioners appointed by it 
for that purpose. The Parks Loan, exclusive of incidental receipts, 
amounted, on December 1, 1904, to $7,620,000, and will be in- 
creased by $300,000 each year until and including the year 1907. 
Under the act the following reservations or parks have been acquired : 
Blue Hills, Middlesex Fells, Stony Brook, Beaver Brook, Hart's Hill, 
Hemlock Gorge, Charles River, Mystic River, Neponset River, King's 
Beach, and Lynn Shore, Revere Beach, Winthrop Shore, Quincy 
Shore. These reservations contain the most notable scenery and 
opportunities for recreation within the Metropolitan District, include 
lands lying in more than a single city or town, and supplement the 
local parks which the several cities and towns are providing within 
their several limits at their own expense. Briefly stated, these parks 



* Chapter 407 of the Acts of 1893. 



10 



now include 7,283.83 acres of woodland, 1,799.85 acres forming a 
frontage of 47 miles of river-bank, 163 acres forming a frontage of 
9.86 miles of seashore. 

Chapter 464 of the Acts of the year 1899 specifically authorized 
" the acquirement of a portion of Nantasket Beach and adjoining 
lands, waters and rights therein including Strait's Pond" and in- 
cluded Cohasset in the number of cities and towns required to share 
in the cost. Appropriations made under this act have been provided 
for by a loan on forty-year bonds of the Commonwealth, which now 
aggregates $700,000. Under this act about 5,600 feet of the Beach, 
and other land sufficient for administration buildings has been ac- 
quired. 

Metropolitan Parks — Boulevards. 

Chapter 288 of the Acts of the year 1894, known as the Boulevard 
Act, more specifically authorized the Commission *'to connect any 
road, park, way or other public open spaces with any part of the 
cities or towns of the Metropolitan Parks District under its jurisdic- 
tion by a suitable roadway or boulevard." A separate loan was 
authorized for this purpose to be provided for, one-half by the Com- 
monwealth and one-half by the cities and towns of the District 
according to an apportionment made at the same time and in a simi- 
lar way to that provided for under the Park Act. This loan is 
known as the Metropolitan Parks Loan Series Two and now amounts 
to $4,185,000, and will be increased by $300,000 each year until and 
including the year 1907. Under this act the land for 25.61 miles of 
parkway has been acquired, and construction is either completed or 
well advanced upon the following parkways : Blue Hills, Middlesex 
Fells, Revere Beach, Mystic Valley, Neponset River, Fresh Pond, 
Furnace Brook, Nahant Beach and Lynnway. 

Practically all claims arising out of acquirements of land thus far 
made have been satisfied out of the funds already available. 

Under these acts the Park Commission is authorized to receive 
gifts of land and the Treasurer of the Commonwealth is authorized 
to receive and hold in trust gifts of money for any of the purposes 
for which the appropriations may be expended. Under this authority 
important gifts of land and money have been received by deed or 
under the will of public spirited citizens. 

An apportionment of the cost of the Metropolitan Park System 
made in 1895 was set aside by Chapter 550 of the Acts of 1896 and 
a new apportionment provided for to begin with the year 1900. Pay- 
ments have been made under this apportionment and a new appor- 
tionment is being made in 1905.

METEOPOLITAIS" SEWERAGE ^ORKS. 




The Board of Metropolitan Sewerage Commissioners was estab- 
lished by chapter 439 of the Acts of the year 1889, and the Board 
was authorized to construct and maintain a system of sewage dis- 
posal for cities and towns and portions thereof situated principally 
north of the Charles River, and also a system for cities and towns 
and portions thereof situated principally south of the Charles River. 
The former system and the various extensions now constitute the 
North Metropolitan System, and the latter with its extensions now 
constitutes the South Metropolitan System. The construction of the 
Neponset River valley system was authorized by chapter 406 of the 
Acts of the year 1895 and of the High-level Sewer by chapter 424 
of the Acts of the year 1899, these systems being now embraced in 
the South Metropolitan System. 

The North Metropolitan System comprises the cities of Cambridge, 
Chelsea, Everett, Maiden, Medford, Melrose, Somerville and Woburn, 
and the towns of Arlington, Belmont, Revere, Stoneham, Wakefield, 
Winchester and Winthrop and also portions of the city of Boston and 
the town of Lexington. The population of the District is estimated 
at 494,500. The system embraces 58.004 miles of main sewers. 
Its sewage is discharged at an outlet in the harbor off Deer Island. 

The South Metropolitan System comprises the cities of Newton, 
Quincy and Waltham and the towns of Brookline, Hyde Park, Milton 
and Watertown and portions of the city of Boston and the town of 
Dedham. The population of the District is estimated at 318,300. 
The system embraces 37.548 miles of main sewers. The High-level 
Sewer which has been recently completed discharges the sewage of 
the South Metropolitan System at two outlets in the harbor, each 
about a mile from Nut Island in Quincy. 

The cost of the North Metropolitan System amounted on June 1, 
1905, to $6,088,113.99, and the expenditures made on the South 
Metropolitan System up to that date amounted to $7,606,294.85, a 
total of $13,694,408.84. 

An apportionment of expenditures for the sewerage systems among 
the various cities and towns of the districts is made every five years 
by a commission appointed by the Supreme Judicial Court. These 
commissions have in all cases apportioned the cost of construction 
among the muuicipalities according to their respective valuations, 
and the cost of maintenance and operation according to their re- 
spective populations. The necessary charges for sinking fund, in- 
terest and maintenance are assessed each year upon the several cities 
and towns. The amount annually required for the sinking fund is 
supposed to be sufficient to extinguish the debt incurred at the ex- 
piration of forty years from the date of its contraction.

Sinking Fund Table. 
One dollar put in each year, with interest at the rate of 3% per 
annum compounded semi-annually, amounts to the following in from 
1 to 50 years, both inclusive : — 

To find what amount must be put in each year to sink a given sum at maturity, divide 
the sum to he sunk hy the figures which stand against the number of years and the result 
will be the amount necessary. 

For instance, to find the amount necessary each year, to sink three hundred thousand 
dollars ($300,000) in thirty years, divide $300,000 by 49.19242586.

SINKING FUNDS, 

INTEREST AND ASSESSMENTS 



METEOPOLITAN DISTEIOTS. 



TRE ASuHEil AND REOElYEri-GENER AL. 




BOSTON: 

WRIGHT & POTTER PRINTING CO., STATE PRINTERS, 
18 Post Office Square. 
1906. 



Treasury Department, Aug. 1, 1906. 

The amounts to be paid as assessments for 1906 by the cities 
and towns of the metropolitan districts for the requirements of 
the sinking funds, interest and maintenance, as called for by 
the systems of water, parks and sewers, have been compiled, 
in order that they may give full information respecting the 
amounts and the manner in which they are computed. 

The metropolitan districts comprise forty-one cities and 
towns in the vicinity of and including Boston, with a popula- 
tion, according to the last census, of 1,275,364. They have 
combined for the purpose of mutual advantage in obtaining 
water, park benefits and systems of sewage disposal. 

To finance this large undertaking the Commonwealth has 
issued its bonds to a total amount of $67,160,412. This is 
distinct from the direct debt of the Commonwealth and im- 
poses no direct burden upon the State as a whole, for the pay- 
ment of these bonds is secured by sinking funds, provided for 
by annual assessments upon the cities and towns benefited. 
The State also collects from them the interest and cost of 
maintenance. The management of this enterprise is vested in 
a board of three water and sewer commissioners, five park com- 
missioners, and three Charles River basin commissioners, all 
appointed by the Governor. 

Of the total amount of bonds issued $40,500,000 is for the 
metropolitan water system, which, however, is more than self- 
supporting to the cities and towns interested, for, while the 
total assessments on the cities and towns of the water district 
this year amount to $2,262,657.20, the cities and towns re- 
ceived from the sale of the water to their citizens $3,425,097.84, 
though from this amount they are compelled to pay for the 
maintenance of the system within their respective limits. So 



2 



that probably the revenue about balances the assessments and 
expenses. There have also been distributed to the cities and 
towns in proportion to their annual assessments various amounts 
received from the sale of water to outside interests and for en- 
trance fees. This has amounted up to Nov. 1, 1905, to $200,- 
390.32. 

The total increase of the assessments of the metropolitan 
districts of 1906 over 1905 is $252,288.58. Of this amount, 
$238,936.68 is caused by the increased park assessments, 
$100,000 of this amount being necessary on account of the 
gypsy moths, $53,061.10 on account of Wellington bridge, and 
$15,000 for band concerts. In the park assessments attention 
is especially called to the fact that under the law the assess- 
ments for parks last year should have been made according to 
an apportionment of a commission appointed to determine the 
basis to be used for the years 1905 to 1909. 

This commission however did not report in time to levy the 
assessment, so an act was passed (Acts 1905, chapter 457) 
requiring the prior apportionment to be used for last year and an 
adjustment made this year. The figures for this adjustment 
appear on pages 12 to 20 inclusive and may cause confusion 
unless fully understood. The water assessments have increased 
$85,070.81 over last year, almost entirely in the maintenance 
account, due largely to the payment of $64,988 to the town of 
Clinton, as required by the special act of the Legislature of 1906 
in compensation to that town on account of damages caused by 
the construction of the water works. The sewer assessments 
have decreased $71,718.91 from last year, the greater portion 
of which is caused by a decrease in maintenance.

Metropolitan Water Loan Sinking Fund. 
Method of finding Annual Requirements. 
Find what the present sinking fund will amount to at the maturity 
of the loan, take this amount from the whole loan, and the difference 
will be the amount to be provided for. Divide this difference by the 
amount of $1, put in each year (interest at 3 per cent, compounded 
semi-annually) for the number of years the loan has to run, and the 
result will be the amount required each year to pay the loan at 
maturity. 

For instance, to find what amount will be necessary to put into 
the sinking fund each year to pay the 1935 loan at maturity, multiply 
$2,212,291.23, the amount in the sinking fund Jan. 1, 1906, by 
2.37153993, the amount of $1 put at interest for twenty-nine years 
at 3 per cent., as found in the table on page 35, — and the result will 
be S5,246,536. 

Take this amount ($5,246,536) from the amount of the whole loan 
due in 1935, viz., $13,000,000, and the remainder, $7,753,464, will 
be the amount of that loan unprovided for ; divide the amount 
$7,753,464 by the amount of $1, put in each year with accumulations 
at 3 per cent, for twenty-eight years and one year without accumula- 
tions (the amount put in Nov. 15, 1934, not having time to accumu- 
late a year's interest), viz., 45.37766620, as taken from table on page 
35, and the result will be $170,865.20, the amount necessary to be 
put in each year to equal the whole loan at maturity. 

Proceed the same with the loan of each due date and the total will 
be the sinking fund requirement for 1906. 

* The payments made by the district to the Commonwealth are for each previous year, 
thus requiring the Commonwealth to borrow mouey for current payments, this making the 
Item Interest on advanced payments.

Computations for determining the Assessment for 1906. 
See Ch. 488, Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 and 1906. 

[The proportion to be paid by eacli city and town, except Boston, Is based on the ratio of 
its valuation of property to its consumption of water, Avith double weight being given to 
consumption, Boston's proportion being the ratio of its valuation to the total valuation of 
the cities and towns of the district. The last column shows the total ratio to be paid by 
each city and town of the whole assessment. To find each town's assessment, multiply 
the total assessment by the average ratio, except Boston, where ratio is used. Next year and 
thereafter Boston's proportion is to be on the same basis as the other cities and towns.]

Metropolitan Sewerage Loan Sinking Fund. 

The following is the method of finding the amount necessary for the 
sinking fund each year, in order to pay the debt at its maturity, the 
amount at present in the fund being increased by its earnings com- 
puted at 3 per cent, annually according to the table on page 35. 

Under the law governing the assessment of the north and south 
sewer loans sinking fund, a certain fractional part of the whole loan 
must be provided for each year, and, consequently, the amount re- 
quired for the sinking fund is found somewhat differently from the 
other loans, which are all figured the same as the water loan, on 
page 4. 

For the north and south sewer loans find the amount of the present 
sinking fund at the maturity of the loan by multiplying the amount 
in the sinking fund January 1 by the amount of $1 put at interest 
for the number of years the loan has to run, as taken from the table 
on page 35. Take from this the amount which has already been pro- 
vided for, and the remainder will be the surplus. Take this surplus 
from the whole loan, and the fractional part (which is designated for 
each year) of this remainder will be the amount to be provided for 
this year. Divide this by the amount of $1 for the time the loan has 
to run and the result will be the assessment for 1906. 

For instance, to find the amount of the 1930 sinking fund at 
maturity, multiply $675,926.68, the amount in the sinking fund 
Jan. 1, 1906, by 2.04347825, the amount of $1 put at interest for 
twenty-four years at 3 per cent., as found in table on page 35, and 
the result will be $1,381,241.47. 

The law says that one eightieth of this loan shall be provided for 
in each of the first ten years, one sixtieth in each of the next ten 
years, one thirtieth in each of the next ten years and the remainder 
in the next ten years. 



29 



This loan has been running sixteen years, consequently there should 
be already in the sinking fund enough to amount at maturity to 
ten eightieths plus six sixtieths, or nine fortieths of the whole loan, 
viz., $1,199,250. 

Take this from what the Jan. 1, 1906, sinking fund actually 
does amount to at maturity, viz., $1,381,241.47, and the balance, 
$181,991.47, will be the surplus. Take this surplus from the whole 
loan and it leaves $5,148,008.53, one sixtieth of which is to be pro- 
vided for this year. 

Divide one sixtieth of $5,148,008.53, viz., $85,800.14, by the 
amount of $1 for twenty-three years, viz., 1.98352617, as found in 
table on page 35, and the result, $43,256.37, will be the require- 
ment for 1906.

Sinking Fund Table. 
One dollar put in each year, with interest at the rate of 3 per cent, 
per annum, compounded semi-annually, amounts to the following in 
from 1 to 50 years, both inclusive : — 

To find what amount must be put in each year to sink a given sum at maturity, divide 
the sum to be sunk by the figures which stand against the number of years and the result 
will be the amount necessary. 

For instance, to find the amount necessary each year, to sink three hundred thousand 
dollars ($300,000) in thirty years, divide $800,000 by 49.19242586.

Treasury Department, July 1, 1907. 

This statement, showing the computations for the annual 
assessments of 1907, to be paid bj the cities and towns 
comprising the metropolitan districts for the requirements of 
the sinking funds, interest and maintenance of the water, 
parks and sewer systems, is sent to each city and town in 
order that each one may compute its assessment and be assured 
that the amount levied is correct. 

As the assessments by the State on the metropolitan dis- 
tricts are to cover a period of over forty years, it was deemed 
wise to have the books examined, to make sure that no errors 
had occurred in the accounting between the State and the dis- 
tricts up to the present time. 

Mr. Edward H. Fenton, the Brookline town accountant, 
who is thoroughly familiar with the many complications and 
changes which have taken place in the laws since the metro- 
politan* districts were established, after a careful examination 
of all the accounts in this department relating thereto, has 
made a report, which is now on file in this department. 

In compliance with his report and recommendations it has 
been necessary to make certain adjustments which appear in 
the various accounts. 

The assessments for 1907 show a decrease in the aggregate, 
over 1906, of $11,313.83, due to the adjustment between the 
State and districts. 

The water assessments show a decrease of $67,250.49, while 
the parks assessments show an increase of $34,489.22 and the 
sewer an increase of $21,447.44.

Computations for determining the Assessment for 1907. {^See 
Chap. 488, Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 and 1906.) 

[The proportion to be paid by each city and town is based on the ratio of its valuation 
of property to its consumption of water, with double weight being given to consumption. 
The last column shows the total ratio to be paid by each city and town of the whole assess- 
ment. To find each town's assessment, multiply the total assessment by the average ratio.]

Treasury Department, June 15, 1908. 

Computations for the annual assessments for interest, sinking 
fund and maintenance for 1908 to be paid by the cities and 
towns comprising the metropolitan districts for the water, park 
and sewer systems, have been printed and are sent to each city 
and town, in order that the figures may be verified and the tax- 
payers of tlie districts be assured the amount levied is correct. 

The total metropolitan assessments for the past four years 
are as follows : — 

1905, $3,722,725 93 

• 1906, 3,975,114 40 

1907, 3,963,700 68 

1908 4,237,127 45 

No assessment has yet been made for the Charles River 
basin, because the commissioners failed to make any apportion- 
ment, on the ground that this could not be done until the work 
was finished. There will be a considerable amount of interest, 
which has been advanced by the State, to be assessed when the 
apportionment is finally made.

488, Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 and 1906.) 

[The proportion to be paid by each city and town is based on the ratio of its valuation 
of property to its consumption of water, with double weight being given to consumption. 
The last column shows the total ratio to be paid by each city and town of the whole assess- 
ment. To find each town's assessment, multiply the total assessment by the average ratio.]

Treasury Department, June 25, 1909. 

Computations for the annual assessments for interest, sinking 
fund and maintenance for 1909 to be paid by the cities and 
towns comprising the metropolitan districts for the water, park 
and sewer systems, have been printed and are sent to each city 
and town, in order that the figures may be verified and the tax- 
payers of the districts be assured the amount levied is correct. 

The total metropolitan assessments for the past five years 
are as follows : — 



1905, $3,722,725 93 

1906, 3,975,114 40 

1907, 3,963,700 68 

1908, 4,237,127 45 

1909, 4,334,286 80 



No assessment has yet been made on the metropolitan 
district as a whole for the Charles Kiver basin as the work is 
not completed. Under authority of chapter 175 of the acts 
of the present year the Treasurer and Receiver-General has 
assessed on the cities of Boston and Cambridge, to meet in- 
terest and sinking fund requirements, the sum of $328,606.20, 
divided as follows : — 



Assessment to be paid by the city of Boston for interest re- 
quirements, $184,160 48

Computations for determining the Assessment for 1909. {See Chapter 488, 
Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 and 1906.) 

[The proportion to he paid hy each city and town is hased on the ratio of its valuation 
of property to its consumption of water, with double weight being given to consumption. 
The last column shows the total ratio to be paid by each city and town of the whole assess- 
ment. To find each town's assessment, multiply the total assessment by the average ratio.]

Sinking Fund Table. 
One dollar put in each year, with interest at the rate of 3 per cent, per 
annum, compounded semi-annually, amounts to the following in from 1 to 
50 years, both inclusive : — 

To find what amount must be put in each year to sink a given sum at maturity, divide 
the sum to be sunk by the figures which stand against the number of years and the result 
will be the amount necessary. 

For instance, to find the amount necessary each year, to sink three hundred thousand 
dollars ($300,000) in thirty years, divide $300,000 by 49.19242586.

Treasury Department, July 25, 1910. 

Computations for the animal assessments for interest, sink- 
ing fund and maintenance for 1910 to be paid by the cities and 
towns comprising the metropolitan districts for the water, park 
and sewer systems, have been printed and are sent to each city 
and town, in order that the figures may be verified and the tax- 
payers of the districts be assured the amount levied is correct. 

The total metropolitan assessments for the past six years 
are as follows : — 



1905, 
1906, 
1907, 
1908, 
1909, 
1910, 



$3,722,725 93

3,963,700 68 
4,237,127 45 
4,334,286 80 
4,371,029 33 



No assessment has yet been made on the metropolitan dis- 
trict as a whole for the Charles River basin. The commis- 
sioners, as authorized by law, have been duly appointed, and 
will undoubtedly report their findings during the present year. 
Under authority of chapter 175 of the Acts of the year 1909 
the Treasurer and Receiver-General assessed upon the cities of 
Boston and Cambridge, to meet the interest and sinking fund 
requirements for the year 1909, the sum of $328,606.20, and 
to meet the same requirements for the year 1910 he has as- 
sessed the sum of $155,720, divided as follows : — 

Assessment to be paid by city of Boston for interest require- 
ments, S96,930 00 

Sinking fund requirements, 34,459 00 

Assessment to be paid by city of Cambridge for interest re- 
quirements, 17,950 00

Computations for determining the Assessment for 1910. {See Chapter 488, 
Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 o,nd 1906.) 

[The proportion to be paid by each city and town is based on the ratio of its valuation of prop- 
erty to its consumption of water, with double weight being given to consumption. The last 
column shows the total ratio to be paid by each city and town of the whole assessment. To find 
each town's assessment, multiply the total assessment by the average ratio.]

Sinking Fund Table. 
One dollar put in each year, with interest at the rate of 3 per cent, per 
annum, compounded semi-annually, amounts to the following in from 1 
to 50 years, both inclusive : — 

To find what amount must be put in each year to sink a given sum at maturity, divide the 
sum to be sunk by the figures which stand against the number of years and the result will be the 
amount necessary. 

For instance, to find the amount necessary each year, to sink three hundred thousand dollars 
(S300,000) in thirty years, divide $300,000 by 49.19242586.

Compulations for determining the Assessment for 1911. {See Chapter 488, 
Acts of 1895, as amended in 1901, 1904 and 1906.) 

[The proportion to be paid by each city and town is based on the ratio of its valuation of prop- 
erty to its consumption of water, with double weight being given to consumption. The last 
column shows the total ratio to be paid by each city and town of the whole assessment. To find 
each town's assessment, multiply the total assessment by the average ratio.]

Sinking Fund Table. 
One dollar put in each year, with interest at the rate of 3 per cent, per 
annum, compounded semi-annually, amounts to the following in from 1 
to 50 years, both inclusive : — 

To find what amount must be put in each year to sink a given sum at maturity, divide the 
sum to be sunk by the figures which stand against the number of years and the result will be the 
amount necessary. 

For instance, to find the amount necessary each year, to sink three hundred thousand dollars 
($300,000) in thirty years, divide $300,000 by 49.19242586.
